History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Squanine was originally settled in the second wave of colonists to reach the Marches as a jumping-off point for Glisten Subsector. The population reached its height around the year 750 at just over 1 million, and has declined ever since due to steady relocation of families to Burtson (Spinward Marches 2534).

The government is also in charge of the colony on Burtson (Spinward Marches 2534).
